This hotel was the highlight of our trip. Every other hotel paled in comparison. The staff was fantastic, the food was amazing, and the hotel rooms were exquisite! The cat tour at Club Rio was great as well. I wish we would have had more time to spend at this hotel.

This is a huge resort property that has several amenities for even those just spending a day there. When we first arrived, the concierge sat us down and gave us an overview of the property…what dining options they had, where the pools and hot springs were, and where to meet the bus down to the Club Rio portion of the...

My husband and I took my son and his girlfriend for a weekend getaway, to the Springs. We were all completely delighted with everything. The Springs are amazing. The food is very well done (and I am a chef). The staff is wonderful and well-trained. I highly recommend this resort. It is well worth at least two nights if not... More

Our family of five stayed at The Springs for three nights in the last week of April. The hotel property is amazing! The kids (ages 9, 11, and 13) had a spectacular time hopping from pool to pool, and the waterslide was a huge hit. Club Rio was a lot of fun -- the tubing was definitely worth the money... More

My wife and I came directly here from a disappointing Costa Rica hotel in a different location and had low expectations. We were beginning to think the entire country was just one big letdown. Thankfully, we were wrong. After a bumpy ride up the dirt road to the property, we were greeted by pleasant smiling staff and a gorgeous property.... More

Every room has a great view of the volcano. The rooms beds have a direct view with a large grand window directly facing the volcano. The hotel has about 18 pools, too many to count, heated from the hot springs of the volcano. The pools at the top of the hill start about 103 degrees and then flow down hill... More

We spent 3 nights here for part of our honeymoon. The resort is very private and gorgeous. The honeymoon suite was amazing, very spacious with a jacuzzi tub and private hot spring on the balcony over looking the volcano. The service was great. The food was good at all the restaurants. I wouldn't recommend staying for a full week as... More

Let me start by saying that Costa Rica is a beautiful place. It is not, however an easy place to get around. My wife and I travelled to San Jose quite easily from the States.The bus from the resort was there to greet us at the airport. Being a typical impatient American, I was ready to start my Costa Rican... More

We were there by chance, my husband, my three years old little boy and myself. We hadn't planned for this hotel but sometimes somebody else plans for us. WE LOVED IT! Worth every penny. The rooms are more clean than CLEAN. The bathrooms very nice. the views unbelievable. some of the members of the staff were very friendly. The pools... More

Every inch of the property is impeccably designed/decorated. The food, drinks and service are top notch. We had four fun filled days that included waterfall canyon reppeling, canopy ziplining, ATV extreme tour and of course enjoying cocktails in the natural mineral springs. I highly recommend!!!!
